Yes, loading syntax files could e.g. change the 'isk' setting so syntax
highlighting works better, but this might have other side effects. So in
fact setting syntax (and therefore loading a special syntax file) might
in fact change the behaviour of Vim.
Actually I think the syntax option is a bad example here, since
might not always give the exact syntax setting that is used.
